Dear Mr Sutherland,
Re: Media Technician (Vacancy Ref: JJI25)
I was recently looking through my local newspaper when I found an advertisement for the Media Technician position at Thimble College. After carefully reading the personal specification of the job, I was very happy to find that I meet all the requirements to become a valuable member of your technical team.
I have previously worked as a Production Assistant in the maintenance, storage and operation of various media and specialist IT equipment at Summerfield Academy. I am very skilful in using editing programs and software, including Adobe After Effects, and I have supported my colleagues with both pre-production and post-production duties. I am also acutely aware of health and safety regulations as they relate to the job of a Media Technician.
I possess excellent problem-solving skills, and my communication skills enable me to communicate and work with a variety of people effectively. I also possess the ability to provide clear and practical explanations and tutorials for the use of complex equipment to less experienced members of staff. In my daily work, I am always prepared and organised; consequently, equipment will always be maintained to a high standard and be ready for use whenever required. As an adaptable individual, I am always willing to take on more responsibility. My ability to handle pressure also means that my vision for quality is not clouded when overtime work is required or deadlines are looming.
Thimble College is a respected local College, and it would be an honour for me to join your technical team and support the delivery of lessons, presentations and events for the benefit of your students, staff and the wider community.
I have enclosed my CV for your review. I would be more than happy to discuss my application more fully with you on the phone or in a personal interview.
